I recommend to let the timer for setting up your board run out. The computer will assign you a completely random setup, which can have a very interesting outcome. I ended up having my spy on the first row, my flag protected by a miner and a jumper, but luckily in the corner. 2 bombs on the first left row, with another behind it on the far left. Crazy set up; my bombs were discovered in no time, and my spy stayed undiscovered for quite a while. But after a difficult start, I still won. You should try it...

That's a little bit of lottery.....
Of course you can play with random army's and especially against lower ranked people, the chance you can pull it off is still very high because of the way you play.
But if you play against a bronze captain for instance and this guy is not a real bad player, 9/10 it will go wrong with such a crappy setup :)

And as a silver guy, you'll lose a lot more points like this.
But I do understand the "unpredictable factor".

I also played once like this, and my flag was on the front row,....it didn't take long time to figure that out.....

and i played against a bronze spy back then,.....22 points down the drain :)

I'm never gonna do that again haha :)

Haha this happend to me to in the last game. Sometimes when i think i might easy defeat the player i try this manual to have more challenge. However this time it was someone with a 60% win steak (bronze general). After a very difficult start i managed to win the game.


Nothing's good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
